Eucharist Prayer D

The Liturgy of the Eucharist

Celebrant: The Lord be with you.

People: And also with you.

Celebrant: Lift up your hearts.

People: We lift them to the Lord.

Celebrant: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People: It is right to give him thanks and praise.


Celebrant: It is truly right to glorify you, Father, and to give you thanks; for you alone are God, living
and true, dwelling in light inaccessible from before time and for ever.
Fountain of life and source of all goodness, you made all things and fill them with your
blessing; you created them to rejoice in the splendor of your radiance.
Countless throngs of angels stand before you to serve you night and day; and,
beholding the glory of your presence, they offer you unceasing praise. Joining with
them, and giving voice to every creature under heaven, we acclaim you, and glorify your
Name, as we sing (say),

Celebrant and People:
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

Then the Celebrant continues:
We acclaim you, holy Lord, glorious in power. Your mighty works reveal your wisdom
and love. You formed us in your own image, giving the whole world into our care, so
that, in obedience to you, our Creator, we might rule and serve all your creatures. When
our disobedience took us far from you, you did not abandon us to the power of death. In
your mercy you came to our help, so that in seeking you we might find you. Again and
again you called us into covenant with you, and through the prophets you taught us to
hope for salvation.
Father, you loved the world so much that in the fullness of time you sent your only Son
to be our Savior. Incarnate by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, he lived as one of
us, yet without sin. To the poor he proclaimed the good news of salvation; to prisoners,
freedom; to the sorrowful, joy. To fulfill your purpose he gave himself up to death; and,
rising from the grave, destroyed death, and made the whole creation new.
And, that we might live no longer for ourselves, but for him who died and rose for us, he
sent the Holy Spirit, his own first gift for those who believe, to complete his work in the
world, and to bring to fulfillment the sanctification of all.
At the following words concerning the bread, the Celebrant is to hold it, or lay a hand upon it;
and at the words concerning the cup, to hold or place a hand upon the cup and any other vessel
containing wine to be consecrated.
When the hour had come for him to be glorified by you, his heavenly Father, having
loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end; at supper with them he
took bread, and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his
disciples, and said, “Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the
remembrance of me.”
After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them,
and said, “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for
you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the
remembrance of me.”
Father, we now celebrate this memorial of our redemption. Recalling Christ’s death and
his descent among the dead, proclaiming his resurrection and ascension to your right
hand, awaiting his coming in glory; and offering to you, from the gifts you have given us,
this bread and this cup, we praise you and we bless you.

Celebrant and People:
We praise you, we bless you,
we give thanks to you,
and we pray to you, Lord our God.

The Celebrant continues:
Lord, we pray that in your goodness and mercy your Holy Spirit may descend upon us,
and upon these gifts, sanctifying them and showing them to be holy gifts for your holy
people, the bread of life and the cup of salvation, the Body and Blood of your Son Jesus
Grant that all who share this bread and cup may become one body and one spirit, a
living sacrifice in Christ, to the praise of your Name.
Remember, Lord, your one universal and apostolic Church, redeemed by the blood of
your Christ. Reveal its unity, guard its faith, and preserve it in peace.
And grant that we may find our inheritance with patriarchs, prophets, apostles, and
martyrs and all the saints who have found favor with you in ages past. We praise you in
union with them and give you glory through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.


Celebrant and People
Through Christ, and with Christ, and in Christ, all honor and glory are yours, Almighty
God and Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. AMEN.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
The Breaking of the Bread
The Celebrant breaks the consecrated Bread.
[Alleluia.] Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;
Therefore let us keep the feast. [Alleluia.]
The Gifts of God for the People of God.
Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you, and feed on him in your hearts by
faith, with thanksgiving.


The ministers receive the Sacrament in both kinds, and then immediately deliver it to the


The Bread and the Cup are given to the communicants with these words
The Body of Christ, the bread of heaven. [Amen.]
The Blood of Christ, the cup of salvation. [Amen.]
Let us pray.


Celebrant and People:
Almighty and everliving God,
we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food
of the most precious Body and Blood
of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ;
and for assuring us in these holy mysteries
that we are living members of the Body of your Son,
and heirs of your eternal kingdom.
And now, Father, send us out
to do the work you have given us to do,
to love and serve you
as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord.
To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit,
be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

Deacon Let us go forth into the world, rejoicing in the power of the Spirit.
People Thanks be to God.
The People respond Thanks be to God. Alleluia, alleluia.
